    Hello, I discovered this English sentence and I liked it. How do you say it in your language?

    On the last day of your life, don't forget to die.

    Czech: V poslední den tvého života nezapomeň umřít.

    Serbian: Poslednjeg dana svog(a) života, ne zaboravi da umreš.
    Croatian: Posljednjeg dana svog(a) života, ne zaboravi umrijeti.

    By the way, I don't really like the sentence. :)

    Why not? Unless you happen to have some sort of plot to become immortal and dying is out of question. :p

    Although I'm not sure what the sentence in question exactly means, here we go:


    El último día de tu vida, no te olvides de morir.


    貴方の人生最後の日に、死ぬことを忘れるな。 Anata no jinsei saigo hi ni, shinu koto wo wasureru na.

    It is a common mistake (esp. when translating from English).

    Compare with Russian, Serbo-Croatian: ... своей жизни ..., ... svoga života ... (= "your own" life);
    In Czech (unlike in Russian) the reflexive svůj is obligatory for all persons.

    In Greek:

    «Την τελευταία ημέρα της ζωής σου/σας, μην ξεχάσεις/ξεχάσετε να πεθάνεις/πεθάνετε»
    [tin telef'te.a i'mera tis zo'is su (2nd p. sing. or informal)/sas (2nd p. pl. or formal), min kse'xasis (2nd p. sing. or informal)/kse'xasete (2nd p. pl. or formal) na pe'θanis (2nd p. sing. or informal)/pe'θanete (2nd p. pl. or formal)]

    :thumbsup: It's a common mistake in Serbo-Croatian, too.
